USS Yorktown CV 10 Association postpones the October 14-16, 2021 Reunion to the spring time
Dear Association Members, Families and Friends,
I am regretfully officially notifying you that the upcoming October 14-16, 2021 Reunion is now
postponed until the spring of 2022. Our Board of Directors made this decision yesterday, August 25.
Over these past many months, much work has gone into preparing for the October 14-16, 2021
Reunion and we were ready to do exactly that. Unfortunately, the Covid 19 virus continues to spread
and the Delta variant appears to be spreading at an even much more accelerated rate compared to
the early days of the pandemic.
From the start of the Covid 19 pandemic, your Board of Directors has been very conservative in
dealing with all aspects of Association business. Until we see concrete and absolute signs that the
pandemic is finally under total control, we are going to continue with our very cautious approach and
place the safety of our members and their families as our highest priority.
Within the next few days, our Association Office aboard ship will be providing you with information
about all aspects of what this Reunion postponement means to those of you who have registered and
were planning to come to the October 14-16 Reunion. This will include contact information where you
can get any questions you may have answered. We will use Facebook, our website
www.ussyorktown.org, email, newsletters and possible mailings to keep you advised.
Also, our Leadership Team is currently working with our hotel partners, caterers, transportation
companies, event companies and PPDA, who manages the ship, to come up with new dates for the
spring reunion. As soon as they have coordinated with all of these companies/organizations and
compiled this information, we will be able to select new dates for the spring of 2022 and then asap let
you know what they are.
Please stay in touch, and Hold on to your Yorktown spirit,
Until we can all get together again,
Chairman and CEO
USS Yorktown CV10 Association
